I composited and assisted in the ideation of HUMANIMALS with Director Benjamin Mansur.
In a world where the roles of humans and animals have been flipped, HUMANIMALS explores the complex relationship between humans and animals through a series of revenge-comedy vignettes. But to what end?
About HUMANIMALS, from the Director
HUMANIMALS began after considering why I felt increasingly desensitised towards discussions of animal rights activism. The film explores multiple facets of the issues surrounding animal ethics and consumption by substituting animals with humans in a comedic, but ultimately violent, light. I was interested in asking audiences to think about how they interact with animals in their daily lives, both directly and indirectly, and how they actually feel about this relationship.
